Penn State New Kensington's quest to develop a larger presence in the community continues this weekend with the campus' third annual Fall Festival, geared to local residents as well as campus students and alumni.
The festival gets under way off-campus at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30, with the Chancellor's Gala at Hill Crest Country Club. Then, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1, activities for all ages will take place across the campus' 72 acres.
All events on Oct. 1 will be free to the public. Events include food vendors, crafts, a car show, bed races, kids' activities, an alumni tent, and an indoor concert by the Clarks in the Athletics Center.
"We’ve also made great strides re-establishing ourselves as the community’s campus by engaging residents and opening events to the public," said Kevin Snider, chancellor of the campus. "Our intent is to forge even stronger bonds between the New Kensington campus and the community by developing partnerships to make the Alle-Kiski Valley an even greater place to live, work and learn."
In advance of the festival, campus students are celebrating "Spirit Week" from Sept. 26-30, a five-day schedule of student-centered activities.
